   "Of those men who have overturned the liberties of republics, the greatest number have begun their career by paying an obsequious court to the people, commencing demagogues and ending tyrants.” —Alexander Hamilton
This quote is appropriate for the perilous times we live in. There are those people in the Federal judiciary and in the Congress of the United States who would like nothing better then to be in control of all our lives from cradle to grave, and some are running for President!
When President Kennedy ran for President, the left wing press and their minions in the Government claimed We shouldn't elect a Catholic. They said if we did the Pope would be running the Government in abstention.
Now we have a decent man running for President in Mitt Romney, and the same secular anti-religion groups are saying we can't have a Mormon for President.
I am a Catholic, and don't agree with Mr. Romney's beliefs, but As we saw in the Presidency of John F. Kennedy. Religion played no part in his Presidency, and I believe it should have no bearing on who gets elected President. Jew, Catholic, Protestant, Mormon or agnostic are all eligible for my vote if he/she believes in the sanctity of individual life, even before birth, individual freedoms including free speech without PC constraints and the rule of law.
The one person who should never be leader of this Country is a true believer of Mohammed. A Muslim who believes in the words as written by the founder of the Muslim religion over seven hundred years ago.
Mohammed writes in the Koran, "Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Messenger have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection (Surah 009.029)." Further, Mohammed says: "I have been ordered to fight with the people till they say, 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah'." Any person who follows the atrocities committed in Iraq by the "IRI"(Islamic Army of Iraq) knows that these Muslims are committed to destroying all non-believers. Even it means cutting off their heads while a video camera is recording the murder! The Islamic Army in Iraq, IAI, conducts a brutally violent campaign against foreigners within Iraq, specifically anyone believed to be cooperating with the U.S.-led coalition. IAI has been implicated in several gruesome beheading deaths. The terrorist group aims to drive all U.S. and related Coalition forces, both military and civilian, from Iraq. But IAI does not limit its attacks to just these groups; in addition to the beheading of the American civilian contractor, Nicholas Berg by Abu Musad al-Zaqawi. The Radical Fascist Islamists have also murdered French journalists, Pakistani contractors, an Italian journalist, and Macedonian citizens working for a U.S. company. Anyone who is follower of this "religion" must never lead this Country, or God help us!
There are those who will say I am getting the moderate Muslim confused with the radical, fascist Muslim. My answer to this is let all Muslims here in America disavow and reject radical Islam, and condemn the abhorrent violence they are committing in the name of Allah. Then I will gladly admit I was wrong. Until there is an end of the "deafening silence" of Islamic leaders and their apologists, in the United States, who never condemn the slaughter of innocents by their fellow Muslims, I invoke the words of President Bush the week of 9/11: "Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists."
